Clear video footage of a shootout between French police and terrorists outside the Paris theatre where over 80 people were killed has emerged.

The video, taken by photographer Patrick Zachmann, was obtained by Paris Match, said the UK's Mirror.

In the video, police officers took cover as shots were heard, apparently fired by militants off screen. Sparks could also be seen flying off a parked car, presumably from where bullets struck it.

The Bataclan concert hall was the scene of the biggest massacre of the Paris attacks - 89 people were killed there when armed men gunned down concert-goers and hostages.
